  • Wood Letters (buy them at your local craft store or check out Amazon – see below, I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
  • Yes Glue
  • Sparkly Glitter Scrapbooking Paper (got my single sheets at Hobby Lobby)
  • Sandpaper, Pen, Scissors
  • Embellishments (if desired)

Letters 1

I love this sparkly glitter paper!

Letters 2a

First trace your letters face down on your paper, also facedown. If your letter is bigger than your paper you may have to cut more than one piece.

Letters 3a

Cut out your letters. To cut the inside I simply use a hole punch first and then use my scissors to cut out the middle.

Letters 4a

Add yes glue to the top of your letter, just use your fingers to smooth it all over creating a nice thin layer for your paper to stick to. Then simply wash off your hands with water. Place your paper on top.

Now allow your glue to dry a bit until the paper is secure.

Letters 6a

If you want you can sand the edges using sandpaper to make any overhanging paper flush with the wood. You also have the option to paint your letters first depending on the look you are going for. And since my letters were big and had a paper seam at the bottom I decided to add a little pearl trim. Found these sticky kind at Hobby Lobby.

Letters 10a

The best part is you can choose any scrapbooking paper you like and decorate your wood letters. They look so elegant as a Wedding Decoration!
